Hi dear ,

Welcome to HCM,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have severe jaw pain, mild chest pain, headaches, fatigue and breathlessness. Well there can be many reasons for pain in jaw . It could be because of temporomandibular joint problem or due to bruxism that is clenching of teeth at night or muscle spasm. Sometimes the symptoms can also point towards cardiac problem like angina , so consult cardiologist to rule out this problem . Doctor may order ECG along with other blood tests . Due to clenching of teeth at night jaw begins to pain and pain radiates to other parts also like head and neck . Eat soft , drink plenty of water and take proper rest. I would suggest you to consult dentist for proper evaluation of the condition . Doctor may examine physically or order tests X-ray of tooth , Ct scan or MRI of TMJ . Doctor may give night guard to you son along with muscle relaxants . Doctor may also recommend physical therapy and stretching exercises of jaw.

Hope your concern has been resolved.
Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
